I can tell you why my kids think animals of the desert are cool to study.
My son, who is always thirsty said, “Mom!” “How do desert animals last so long without a drink?” My son is an avid water drinker and he just could not comprehend how something could live without water.
My husband has convinced him that every single thing that is wrong with us (people) in this world, somehow has to do with us just needing to drink more water. He says if we were drinking enough water that we should not fall sick to anything. Because my son follows my husband around like a shadow, he has taken this to heart and drinks water all day long.
It could also be that we live on a very hot island, which makes for very thirsty active boys. Either way, my boy couldn’t wrap his brain around how living things could live in the desert. That is what led us to our Animals of the Desert unit study.
When my kids found out that desert animals usually have special adaptations for coping without the need of water and surviving in extreme cold and hot temperatures, they were ALL in. I think my son sees these adaptations as superhero powers. Whatever works, right?
If you think your kids may also be interested in how animals of the desert manage to survive with hardly any water, then grab these animals of the desert printables to go alongside your lessons:
